So, one day i just felt like sewing something. Now, let me just take a minute to tell you that i am so bad at everything sewing :) I especially have no patience and when i sew you need to have patience! I decided to make an atempt to make a mat that i can carry with me on my walks. To sit on or lay for that matter if the moment inclines. Anyway, i have a stash of fabric scraps of different sizes and patterns. I also happened to have some wadding home. So, i picked 2 fabrics out and my sewing machine. Poor thing must think i hate it :) i cut the 2 fabrics into 4 squares 48x48cm. Then i made a little patchworking (thanks mom for that!) i stitched every square together and ironed the seems to prevent chunkiness.
I then picked out a plain green fabric for the backside and sewed 3 sides together. Before i turn everything right i stitch the wadding onto one short end.
When i turned everything out i "pointed" out the corners and cut a little bit of fabric that was "over" :) Yep, my mesurements are not very good either. I folded the edges and since my intention was to be able to roll the whole thing up while i carry it, i picked out some green ribbon and pinned them to the edges too.
Then all that was left was to sew that last edge and voila! The end!
I know, i know it is not rocket science and i am a poor tutorial writer, but at least i am proud of myself!
And Dixon? Well, see for yourself!
